Used Volkswagen Beetle for Sale

The Volkswagen Beetle is one of the world’s most iconic cars.

Buying A Used Volkswagen Beetle

With striking looks and unique body shape, it’s become a sought-after vehicle all over the globe. Nowadays, you can find a used VW Beetle for a very affordable price. While it may come with a host of modern features - and updated aesthetics - it still has the classic Beetle charm.

The original Volkswagen Beetle was produced in Germany back in the 1930s. It was dubbed the people’s car, which translates as volkswagen in German. The whole purpose of this two-door machine was to provide people with an affordable and practical vehicle option. In 1997, VW launched the New Beetle, which was an updated version of this classic car. The design looked a lot more like a VW Golf, but it retained the affordability of the old Beetle, along with the same buglike appearance.

Since 2011, there’s been a brand new Volkswagen Beetle on the market. It’s another updated version of the iconic Beetle from the 30s and 40s, but with all the modern comforts you need in a practical car. There’s ample room for a small family, and it still offers up a unique driving experience compared to other cars on the market!

There are lots of different versions of the VW Beetle on the market for you to buy.

The last generation of used VW Beetles offers up seven different trim options - alongside the standard trim, of course. With the standard option, you get a lot of amazing features, including electric mirrors, ABS, folding rear seats, remote locking, and traction control.

More features come in this package, but you can also select any of these trims to gain a few extras:

  • Design: air conditioning, alarm, alloy wheels, audio remote, front fog lights
  • Fender Edition: all of the above plus CD multichanger, cruise control, lumbar support, parking sensors, sports seats
  • GSR: all of the above plus heated seats
  • R Line: same as Fender Addition only no CD multi changer
  • Sport: Same as R Line but with improved engine specs and climate control
  • Turbo Black: upgraded version of the Sport
  • Tubo Silver: upgraded version of the Sport

The choice is entirely up to you, and it’s well worth looking into the different trims available before you buy. If you need specific features, then it can be a good idea to spend a little extra just to get a VW Beetle with the best trim for you.

Excellent Engine Options

VW Beetle buyers have a choice between four fantastic engines. One of which runs on diesel, and the other three are all petrol-powered.

  • 1.6-Litre Diesel - this option comes with an impressive 103bhp and is very economical.
  • 1.2-Litre Petrol - you get 102bhp in this small petrol option.
  • 1.4-Litre Petrol - things take a big jump with this beast offering 157bhp!
  • 2.0-Litre Petrol - the biggest engine of the lot, maxing out at just under 200bhp (197 to be precise)

All of these engines call upon the legendary TSI Technology from VW. As such, this means that they’re a lot more powerful than they might seem. All of them are turbocharged or supercharged, which gives you some extra oomph.

Both automatic and manual gearboxes are available. Each one provides you with a smooth and comfortable ride - the VW Beetle is one of the easiest cars for you to drive around. The compactness of the design makes them perfect for cities, but the extra power from the engines means they handle motorway cruising with ease.
